20 Years ago today

Today is significant because the Album by Erykah Badu called “Baduizm” was released. I remember it like it was yesterday. My husband was married to someone else and I was married to someone else too. Thinking back Erykah Badu also did a Live album that same year in which “Call Tyrone” was on that album and that song completely fit my ex husband. LOL…it’s funny that at certain times in your life songs are definitely the soundtracks to your life. I definitely can say that Baduizm was a soundtrack to my life 20 years ago. I was 27 years old and I had very young children. Ms. Badu most likely had no idea how her music would reach out and touch millions of us starving for something new and refreshing. Even more so how the words to her songs would cause many of us women, that were putting up with all kinds of craziness in substandard relationships. To eventually break free and seek out something better, even if it meant we would remain single for decades. Baduizm was uplifting and supplied the ability to think freely so I could move forward. It actually lit a fire under me. It made me question the state of the relationship that I was end and also come to the conclusion that the person that I was with was not positively serving me. It was a toxic relationship. Thank God I was able to move forward because now things are totally different. Being in a loving relationship is my reality and I am truly blessed. Erykah Badu Thankyou for Baduizm.
